A year ago, both Council Rock South and La Salle saw their baseball seasons end in devastating fashion. In an error-marred state-quarterfinal playoff, C.R. South yielded three runs in the bottom of the seventh and bowed to Spring-Ford, 6-5. La Salle, after jumping out to an 11-0 lead in the first 11/2 innings of a Catholic League semifinal against Neumann-Goretti, gave up 13 runs in a nightmarish sixth inning and fell, 18-13. The chance to come full circle comes on Friday, when the Golden Hawks and Explorers clash in a PIAA Class AAAA championship game set for 1 p.m. at Penn State's Medlar Field at Lubrano Park.

THE MOST pressing matter on my mind leading up to La Salle's Sweet 16 game on Thursday is how I am going to obtain a ticket. Not to the West Regional semifinal against Wichita State, but to the Flyers-Islanders matchup taking place in Philly on the same night. Let me explain. I'm a bit superstitious, and in my mind the only way for La Salle to win on Thursday, is for me to be in the building I've visited each day the Explorers have won an NCAA Tournament game this year - the Wells Fargo Center.

LOS ANGELES - The good doctor didn't mean to be contrary. Dr. John Giannini was not being obtuse, or ornery, or even particularly prickly the past 2 weeks, when he disputed the "Cinderella" tag affixed to his Explorers. His dispute, of course, was meant to legitimize La Salle in his own players' eyes. He's practically a sports psychologist, for goodness' sake. Don't let him mesmerize you with that soothing tone. La Salle was as Cinderella a story as any team, ever.

NEW YORK - John Giannini has insisted that the margin for error for his La Salle team in the Atlantic 10 is minuscule. In Fordham's overstuffed gym in the Bronx Saturday, he was proven right. The Explorers (18-11, 7-7 A-10) dropped a physical 67-62 decision to Fordham, surrendering 35 points and 16 rebounds to Chris Gaston, the league's leading rebounder, and 26 offensive rebounds to the Rams. The win dropped La Salle behind Dayton, which hosted UMass on Saturday night, in the Atlantic Ten standings.

Who's hot Ole Miss 6-foot-7 senior Murphy Holloway scored 23 points and grabbed nine rebounds in the SEC championship win over Florida and had 10 points and nine rebounds in the 57-46 NCAA win over Wisconsin. Holloway shot 15 for 21 in the two wins. During La Salle's two NCAA tournament games, 6-8 sophomore Jerrell Wright is averaging 17 points and seven rebounds and has shot 12 for 13 from the field. Who's not Guard Nick Williams has shot just 7 for 25 in his last two games for Ole Miss.

Chartrand's fourth touchdown, a 55-yard pass to Jerry Giordano (93 yards), tied a school record for most touchdown passes in a game and put Marist (3-3, 3-2 MAAC) ahead by 20 points with 14 minutes, 12 seconds left in the fourth quarter. Chartrand completed 11 of 19 attempts and passed for three touchdowns in the first half to put the Red Foxes up by 21-7 at halftime.

La Salle proved it is for real. The Explorers, picked to finish 13th in the 14-team Atlantic Ten, recorded a convincing 80-70 conference-opening win over preseason favorite Xavier on Wednesday night at Tom Gola Arena in one of the program's best wins in recent memory. The Explorers (11-4, 1-0 A-10) won their fourth straight and ninth in 10 games while showing they are legitimate after putting together an impressive out-of-conference record that came against a soft schedule.

The La Salle lacrosse team took its shot at one of the top programs in North America on Friday. The Explorers came awfully close to a statement victory. La Salle scored a flurry of late goals to force overtime, but fell to visiting Hill Academy of Ontario, 12-11. La Salle (5-4) trailed by 6-2 at halftime and 10-7 in the fourth quarter. Zach Drake's second goal sent the game to overtime. Johns Hopkins recruit Jake Fox won it 16 seconds into overtime after Hill controlled the faceoff.

AS HARBINGERS go, Adam Arcadia's first swing in the fourth inning against St. Joseph's Prep foretold of potential doom for the La Salle High rally. After the Explorers tied the game with two outs, the senior designated hitter stepped in with a runner in scoring position and waved at an offspeed pitch with an overzealous bat. Before he could unleash another wild cut, third-base coach John Reifsnyder called timeout and met Arcadia down the baseline. "He just said that this is a big at-bat and the team needs me to come through with a hit, and I just have to focus and forget about that pitch," Arcadia said.

Dom Cuoci carved out a reputation as a starting pitcher to be feared last season. He was the one on the mound when La Salle clinched the Catholic League baseball title. Lest anyone forget, he's a pretty good hitter, too. The last two days have made that clear. Cuoci drove in eight runs Friday as La Salle thumped host St. Joseph's Prep, 15-3, in a Catholic League Red game. Cuoci went 3 for 3 with a triple and a home run. He also struck out four in three innings to earn the win in a game shortened to five innings.

WHETHER we're drunk, sober or plain old hung over, the classic diner provides us with some of our most familiar and rejuvenating comforts: a cushy vinyl booth, a swivelly stool, a strong mug of coffee, a hot and homey plate served by a funny lady with the same name as your grandma. But, according to one local professor, these restaurants are more than just a place to plop down and unplug. They're a conduit through which we can burrow into American culture like a crumb-topped blueberry muffin - baked on the premises, of course.

VILLANOVA'S James Bell became a big shotmaker as a junior. He became the best player on the best team in the city as a senior. Bell did not have the best numbers in the city this season, but his value as a scorer, defender and leader for a team that won its four Big 5 games by the most points in history was more than enough to sway the voters as he was named the 2013-14 Big 5 Player of the Year. Bell is part of a first-team All-Big 5 unit that includes La Salle senior Tyreek Duren, Saint Joseph's seniors Langston Galloway and Halil Kanacevic and 'Nova teammate JayVaughn Pinkston, the lone junior on the team.

IN A RECENT CHAPTER of Philadelphia's esteemed Book of Basketball, a deep and dangerous team put together a wonderful season that ended against an opponent that was just a little bit better. The Philly team was stacked with undergraduate talent; in fact, it lost only one significant player to graduation. So the team expected - and was expected - to have another outstanding season; but that did not happen for La Salle. Not far away, a senior-laden team made a late-season run and finally performed to its capacity.

HERSHEY - David Krmpotich was nearly flawless in his verbalization of the La Salle High basketball season as he stood in front of a gaggle of reporters after the upstart Explorers lost in the Class AAAA championship Saturday night at the Giant Center in Hershey. "This is awesome that we could even get here," the 6-7 junior forward said. "This is amazing. We did not expect this. Really, our 65 practices this year shaped us into the team we were today. " The only missing words were melancholy, but his face, speckled in crimson and dripping with disappointment, said it all. In fact, "awesome" might be an apt description of an Explorers' season that needed all 65 practices to coalesce late, solidify an identity and eventually become District 12's first AAAA title contender.

THE NCAA Tournament Selection Committee had consecutive very bad Sundays. The group of well-meaning men and one woman simply did not understand how to put a balanced bracket together. They spent all their time rewarding teams for November and December performance rather than lining up teams on how they were likely to play in late March and April. The group is in desperate need of an oddsmaker and somebody who really understands the game, preferably both. I thought there were six teams with enough talent and firepower to beat Wichita State in this tournament.

HERSHEY, Pa. - La Salle's impressive and surprising run at its first state basketball championship finally ended. With considerable athleticism and toughness, much of it gained on the gridiron, New Castle completed a perfect season by beating the Explorers, 52-39, Saturday night in the PIAA Class AAAA boys' final at the Giant Center. "I don't know if it was the difference in the game, but we certainly got bullied at times," La Salle coach Joe Dempsey said. The Hurricanes, whose starting lineup featured four senior starters with football scholarships, went 31-0 en route to their first title.
